Busby's Pop-Up Bar
The Royal Botanic Garden's pop-up gin bar.
September 01, 2017
From this Saturday, September 2, you'll be able to sit back with a gin cocktail at Busby's Bar in Sydney's picturesque Royal Botanic Garden. The pop-up bar — which will run all summer next year — will serve brunch, lunch, snacks and drinks Thursdays through Sundays. Start with a coffee and a pastry at breakfast, move on to a picnic box at lunch and end with a charcuterie board and draught beer at dinner.
Named after 19th century viticulturist James Busby, the bar will be situated in the garden's historic Victoria Lodge with sprawling views across Sydney's sparkling harbour.
If the crowds at the other harbourside venues are anything to go by (hello, Opera Bar), you'll have to get in early to nab a seat. To get there, enter through Victoria Lodge Gate via Mrs Macquaries Road.
The bar is currently open from Thursday to Sunday from 10am till 6pm. From October 1, the bar will extend its opening hours until 7.30pm.
